The value of money raised from the issuance of environment, social and governance (ESG) factors-based bonds in Euronext markets hit an all-time high of €1 trillion in 2022 with over 310 new ESG bonds listed in the outgoing year. Overall, the pan-European exchange recorded over 7,800 new bond listings on its markets in 2022.

Euronext, in a statement released on Thursday, noted that it saw 83 new equity listings in its markets in the year. These listings accounted for a capital raise of €3.8 billion and aggregated market capitalization of €23 billion at listing.

Euronext Tech Equities in 2022

According to a company statement, half of the new equity listings it registered this year were on behalf of technology companies. This is even as the market infrastructure provider launched the Euronext Tech Leaders segment in June.

The segment, which the company said caters to high-growth and leading tech firms, attracted four new issuers, bringing the total number of issuers in that category to over 110. These issuers, who are active in both private and public equity markets, boast of an aggregated market cap of €0.8 trillion as of December 29, 2022, the pan-European exchange said.

Euronext: Europe’s Premier Equity Venue?

In the statement, the company said it confirmed its position as the leading equity listing venue in Europe and global debt listing venue in 2022.

“Euronext remains the European equity listing venue of reference, being home to nearly 400 large-capitalization issuers and 1,500+ SME issuers and continues to attract leading companies across all industries and geographies in 2022,” the exchange said.

According to Euronext, large-cap firms continued their patronage of the wide range of listing options available on its markets. While some chose the traditional initial public offering route, others became listed by becoming independent of their parent companies. Yet, others opted for Special Purpose Acquisition Company deals, Euronext added.

In the first category, for instance, Vår Energi, which Euronext described as “the most valuable oil exploration and production company to conduct an IPO globally in the past 10 years,” raised €774m, and its market cap stood at €6.9bn at listing.
